Wellbeing Point launched at Falkirk LRC

Wellbeing and Support Services at the college have been working in partnership with mental health charity Penumbra, to establish a Wellbeing Point. 

The focus of the new Wellbeing Point – based at the Falkirk Campus Learning Resource Centre (LRC) - is self-management of health and wellbeing with easy access to supports and resources.

Penumbra is one of Scotland’s largest mental health charities who work to promote mental health and wellbeing for all, prevent mental ill health for people who are ‘at risk’, and to support people with mental health problems.

Val Cannon FVC’s Wellbeing and Support Officer, Liz Muir, FVC’s Wellbeing and Support Administrator and Toyin Opeloyeru, FVC’s Researcher (Mental Health) welcomed William Wright, Penumbra’s SDS Manager to help launch the new facility on Monday 18 June.

Val, said: “There is no need to log-in and with one click there is access to NHS Moodzone, a Local Information Support System or NHS Free Stress Control Courses. Everyone can access this support including students, staff and the public, and we have also initiated plans to establish Wellbeing Points at our other campuses.”
